Sanderson cameras were the brainchild of F. H. Sanderson, a cabinet maker with an interest in architectural photography. The principle feature of all Sanderson Cameras are the lens board support struts which are made to allow a variety of camera movements. The cameras were patented by Sanderson in 1895 but production was entrusted to Holmes Bros. Houghton's handled the marketing and in 1904 Houghton merged with Holmes Bros. The last of the Sandersons left the production line in 1939. This example was acquired in October 2002 . Further information with another earlier example here.
